EVO Minecraft MOOC: Third time around overview

EVOMC17 is now in its third iteration of seeking to introduce teachers to Big G Gamification by experiencing the concept through interaction with teaching peers in the “little g” game of Minecraft. The presentation explains how the community has sustained itself for three years as a space where experienced players and noobies alike can contribute to each other’s appreciation of Minecraft as a “toy” for enabling learning over a wide range of concepts.


In WizIQ, here

This presentation will focus on the evolution of the EVO Minecraft MOOC community from 2015 through the present, how it has indeed become a community, who it has attracted from other networks, and the interesting move from starting in creative and then morphing to survival (2015 and 20160, to the running of two parallel worlds as we do today (2017), with even a third (last year's world from 2016) whose existence was just recently inadvertently exposed, with outcomes yet to be known (but we might have even more to report by Friday).

Week 5 Feb 6-12 Focusing


Tue Feb 7 01:00 UTC - VSTE Server Party


Hosted by Beth O'Connell and Kimball Harrison from VSTE, Virginia Society for Technology in Education


For people in the USA this was Monday evening Feb 6 


Vance managed to stream this here, https://youtu.be/MgWzZXXECLI

However, not without problems. I had been previously streaming from Wiz(Q and had suppressed my mic for that webcast.

When I streamed MC with Discord for this session I neglected to toggle my mic back in (it was 5 a.m. for me, not even one cup of coffee yet).

So the audio in the recording is from Discord but without me in the conversation. Sorry about that.

Week 3: Network Jan 31, 2017


Next Monday at 8 PM Eastern VSTE meets in our Minecraft world, "VSTE Place." I'd love to have some EVO Minecraft MOOC members join us. I want to present the idea to VSTE that we do a "Survive the Summer" event from Memorial Day, May 29th, through Labor Day, September 4th. We'd have a survival map members can teleport to. 

I'd love for any of you to come talk it up with me. We might have a panel discussion if there are enough of us, answering some questions that come up...

What's the big deal about survival? How do you start? What are some common goals we might adopt? Where do you get your best information about how to survive? That sort of thing.
